Having practiced in India, I really am able to appreciate how good the system of DPC is for patients and their families. I am planning to do my residency in Family Medicine and start my own private practice. I will definitely be practicing DPC in the near future. Thanks to BRI for introducing me to such a wonderful opportunity in the US.
